My guess is you’ve searched this page out because you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
If I’m right, that also means that today’s grid is asking for players who have played for both the Colorado Avalanche and the Philadelphia Flyers.
And, I’m also guessing that you’re a little stuck on this particular square and you’re looking for a little help to keep your grid immaculate. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, I’m here to help.
I’ve already done the research and have put together a list of well-known stars along with some more “under-the-radar” players that could land you a low rarity score.
Garth Snow began his NHL goaltending career with the Quebec Nordiques after being drafted in the 6th round of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. After two years in Quebec, he also played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New York Islanders.
Particularly during his time with the Flyers and Islanders, Snow established himself as a reliable netminder, often stepping up in crucial moments for his teams.
Following his playing days, Snow transitioned into the administrative side of hockey. In 2006, shortly after his retirement as a player, he was named the general manager of the New York Islanders, a position he held for over a decade.
Pierre-Édouard Bellemare started his NHL career in 2014 with the Philadelphia Flyers, signing as a free agent after playing in the Swedish Hockey League. During his time with the Flyers, he quickly established himself as a reliable player, particularly noted for his defensive prowess and penalty-killing abilities.
In 2017, Bellemare joined the inaugural team of the Vegas Golden Knights, contributing to their historic run to the Stanley Cup Finals. Following this, he moved to the Colorado Avalanche in 2019, continuing to showcase his defensive skills.
He signed with the Lightning in 2021 and has spent the last two seasons in Tampa Bay.
Jim Dowd, an American former center, had a remarkable 17-season NHL career, playing for ten different teams. He made history by becoming the first New Jersey native to play for the New Jersey Devils, with whom he debuted in the 1991-92 season after a successful college career.
After leaving the Devils, Jim Dowd played for a series of NHL teams, including the Whalers, Canucks, Islanders, Flames, Predators, Oilers, Wild, Canadiens, Blackhawks, and Avalanche. His career was marked by various trades and signings, with significant playing time at the Oilers and nearly four seasons with the Wild.
Daniel Brière is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player and current executive serving as the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers. Brière was drafted in the first round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes and played for several NHL teams, including the Sabres, Flyers, Canadiens, and Avalanche.
He entered the NHL with the Coyotes and spent his first four seasons splitting time between the NHL and the AHL. Brière’s NHL career took off after he was traded to the Buffalo Sabres, where he emerged as a star player. He led the Flyers in scoring during the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs and nearly broke Wayne Gretzky’s record for points in a final series.
